Application guidelines 

Applicants are judged solely on the quality of their work, and not on the basis of previous education, exhibitions or awards.

Applications for the Writing Fellowship must be submitted before December 1. More info and the application form here.

Applications and new guidelines for the Visual Arts Fellowship are available here. All applications must be submitted electronically before February 1.

Eligibility: The Fellowship is open to all emerging visual artists creating two-dimensional, three-dimension and time-based work. Applicants are judged on the quality of their work. The jury disqualifies applicants it deems to be already emerged. Tenure track professors in Fine Arts who are on sabbaticals are considered ineligible. International applicants are welcome to apply. Collaborative teams may apply under one application and if selected they will only be awarded one Fellowship to share. Applicants who would like to apply as an individual artist as well as part of a collaborative team may do so if these two bodies of work are completely different and distinctive.

Artists must be in residence during their Fellowships. Absences may not exceed more than fourteen consecutive days or total more than thirty days during the seven-month Fellowship.

Please read carefully the guidelines and criteria to apply on FAWC's website
